With record deficits, the states are all scrambling to take in more revenue than ever before.

Why not allow our younger citizens to get in on the action? As long as parents are on board, where's the harm?  Disney

This could mean extra billions per year in generating extra state revenue, and potentially huge windfalls for some lucky minors.  Hyper

Reward the well behaved kids who have top grades, don't do drugs, and show aptitudes for understanding the lottery games and odds.

The adults have shown what they can do, time to pass the baton to the next generation!

          18 it is, although I admit that I bought a few tix. when I was 17.

          Also I've been going to the racetrack since i was 15, but back then no one seemed to care about that.

                      The kids can wait until they are 18 because kids should be concentrating on growing up and school not gambling.  Kids gambling is wrong!!!-weshar75

                          Perhaps a little "parental supervision" is all that is needed.....

                            So if they play marbles with cash wagers, should they be imprisoned.  What?

                            I know, because as a young lad this is what I did to make extra money.  Big Grin Santa

                              Exactly, someone like Donald Trump or Paris Hilton, would be excellent supervisors and role models for the wee ones.  Love
